Former temporary Youth Hostel, Portobello, Edinburgh
This impressive building was the former Ramsay Technical Institute, on Inchview Terrace, Portobello. In 1970 there was an arrangement to use it as a temporary arrangement, with 200 beds, while the Bruntsfield Youth Hostel in the City was to be renovated. The plans were delayed, however, the Portobello premises being brought into use in 1972 (and possibly early 1973), when a staggering 20,000 overnights were recorded.
